So, you invent, innovate and come up with something as it's a do or 'dye' situation that'll keep them busy and you happy. Today's bonding session with Viaan happened with some tie and dye activity at home, with a special appearance by Simba (who nearly got her tail dyed)," read an excerpt from Shilpa's post.
